I started doing endurance events in 2007 as a cyclist. Since then I discovered running and swimming and really enjoy all three sports. When people ask me what sport in a triathlon is my favorite, I used to say cycling was my favorite, but I can honestly say I really enjoy all three. I am also a licensed mental health professional and think the mental side of triathlon and endurance sports is the most neglected aspect of training and racing. I have spent my whole career helping people make changes in their life and achieve their goals. This is one reason I became a triathlon coach; to work with people on both aspects. I have the experience in both the mental and physical side of endurance sports to help you achieve your goals. Most endurance athletes have a tape-recording that plays in their head when things get tough (e.g. “I can't do it”, “I am weak”, or “this is too hard”). If the recording plays during training or competition and it is getting in your way, I am the coach for you. I believe that getting that recording stopped can bring a lot of joy to you and keep you exercising and participating in endurance activities. Give working with me a try and see how much you can improve!
